Spandex sapiens

15 yrs 90 minutes 2015 6.5

Michael, born and raised in Canada with a Finnish pastor father, escaped as a child into a world filled with suited heroes from comics and professional wrestlers on television. He began to build up his body and eventually he filled out his own wrestling suit. As an adult, he moved to Finland, and introduced professional wrestling to the country. Now in his forties, he realizes that he has no one to share his life with, mostly because of his odd lifestyle. While following his pursuit of love, we also meet the future of Finnish wrestling: Transexual Jessica Love who knocks over all expectations. Spandex sapiens is the Finnish wrestling documentary you did not know that you needed to see.
